If you are new to chainmail or just need some new tools, here are some that I personally recommend:
Tekton Bolt Cutters- These are the first ones I bought. They can easily cut through 16 gauge galvanized steel.
Knipex Bolt Cutters- These are excellent bolt cutters, and they will cut through most anything you can throw at them.
Xuron Bent Nose Pliers- These are good for jewelry. They don't have teeth, and the bend helps to grip the rings better.
Irwin Bent Nose Pliers- If you are making chainmail where you don't care if the rings are scratched, use these. They also have a bent nose, which helps with bending the rings.
Irwin Needle Nose Pliers- If you don't want bent nose pliers, try these.
